This is the best location that I have stayed in Paris, the Isle is in the certer of everything from the hop on hop off batabus to transit bus lines. Imagine waking up to the bells of Notre Dame, walking up the street, following the sounds of a violin playing La Vie en Rose, does it get any better than this? The historical building is jaw dropping charming, from the exposed beams overhead to the fantastic art work on the walls, no matter where you look it is postcard perfect. Yes the rooms are small but aren't all European rooms at this price point? They were not uncomfortably small to my husband and I, I had room for everything. The beds are soft and comfy, the pillows blentiful (I like a lot of pillows) and the comforter great for me, too much for my husband so they sent up an extra sheet.
Now for the Piece de Resistance--I lost my gold and diamond necklace somewhere in France, after 21 days I decided it was worth a shot, it didn't cost anything to e mail the hotel, why not ask the Hotel where we stayed in Paris and yes they had found my necklace, were holding it for me, just didn't know how to get in touch with me since the reservation was made by our friends in another room, please don't send a reward, it is our policy to see that anything left at our hotel is returned to the owner, was their response to my offering to send something to the housekeeper who found my necklace. They have e mailed me today saying the necklace had been mailed--this is service! Tell me if this would happen in many hotels.
We didn't have breakfast there as we were warned that it was expensive and the bar never seemed open but there are cafes everywhere and a wine shop a few doors up, so we bought our own wine and enjoyed it in the entrace area outside and in the loby.
This is my favorite Paris Hotel, I can't say enough about it except--the even speak English without a sneer!
